Halibut Casserole

Halibut is such a diverse fish and much like chicken it's almost impossible to run out of recipes, unless, someone catches a 100 pounder or so ... goodness!! ... We ran through our usual clutch of recipes and became somewhat desperate, and the kids were getting sick to death of it... so this cheesy goodness was created.

Halibut Casserole

3 T butter
3 T flour
2 C hot milk
1/4 t each: paprika, nutmeg
1/2 t fennel
**4 steamed and flaked pieces of halibut - guessing about 6 oz each
1/2 C chopped chives
drops of fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 C Monterey Jack cheese - shredded

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Steam Halibut
Heat butter in pan, add flour to make a roux, pour in hot milk, add spices, add halibut and lemon juice, mix in 1/2 cheese,
Bake about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven, set oven to broil.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture and chives.
Broil 2-3 minutes.

** When I steam halibut, I fill the water with lemons, capers, onions, garlic, and white wine.
